Five metal compounds are superheated and fused into this durable yet lightweight alloy that serves as the chassis of Oakley Wire® frames and as components in other styles.
A patented innovation that ensures the frame makes contact only at the bridge of the nose and the sides of the head. It holds lenses in precise optical alignment with a secure fit that eliminates the pressure points common with frames that hook the ears.
One of the most optically pure materials used in eyewear today, it maximizes clarity and impact resistance while filtering out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. Not a coating, the UV protection is from the lens material itself.
High Definition Optics®
High Definition Optics® (HDO®) is a collection of patented technologies that allow Oakley eyewear to meet or exceed the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute for optical clarity, visual fidelity, and impact resistance.
Designed to balance light transmission and reduce glare, this premium lens coating is made with super-heated metal oxides. It is available in a spectrum of colors for optimizing vision in virtually any light condition.
